Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the final part of Wagner’s epic cycle, Der Ring des Nibelungen, Siegfried’s world descends into falsehood and betrayal before his cursed life is ended by a single spear. Fate ignites the final conflagration, which sets the world to await its new beginning.

Filmed at Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu in 2004, Harry Kupfer’s stunning production, first staged in Berlin, numbers among the greatest productions of modern times and is recorded in sumptuous surround sound.

Sung in German with English, French, German, Spanish, Catalan and Italian subtitles
